Well we waited and waited. The Captain announced we would be late, 7;30 or after. Finally he admitted there was a technical problem and we would not be sailing that night. It would be necessary to bring in experts from Europe and USA to advise.
As a result of this technical issue, the speed of the ship would be restricted and we would sail a revised itinerary.We would call at Nha Trang and Chan May in Vietnam and Sanya in China. We would be bypassing Koh Samui and Bangkok.We sailed on the evening of 13th December. Our arrival in Hong Kong would be on schedule on 22nd December.
As a gesture of goodwill we would be offered a full refund on the cruise as well as a 50% future cruise credit. More than adequate compensation!
